Question about Philips 180MT (Silver) 18.1" LCD Monitor
Both worked fine till one day the computer input started a horizontal tearing after it warms up. TV still works great. I can keep using it as a TV but would like to use it as a monitor also again. Please do not suggest refresh rate or a different pc as a solution, I am not a moron. If there is a part going bad please be as specific as possible in the description and location of the part and if you know of a source for replacement parts. Thanks in advance for the good answers!

The good news..
The bad news, The problem is the video logic board inside the monitor. Replacement is the only option and you will have to beg Philips to even get the location of a replacement board if it's not still under warranty. Then sell your first born child to get it.
The video logic board takes all the input signals and sends them to a central processing unit that then sends the signal to the panel itself. If any of the inputs are damaged, then only that section will fail. The monitor input side of your board is dying, most likely due to overheating so collapses after it reaches it's thermal limits.
Chances are the vertical/horizontal input from the video cable is being shorted inside the IC that controls video from the PC. This is a common fault in many Samsung LCD monitors as well.
